-Myst 89(By far his most famous game) Discription:
Myst for the TI-89! This great adventure game is a point-and-click game. NOTE: Myst 89 is a demo because the whole game would impossibly fit on your calc. But don't worry. There'll be still enough fun in this game even though it's limited to the main island(meaning there are no extra ages) and some other things. Myst is huge and really heavy on files, meaning you'll probably won't be able to have any other files on your calc, but I think it's worth it! I did my best to make the great graphics great on calc. Wait no longer and try it out! Don't forget to read the readme for IMPORTANT installation info and more.
-Pop 89(a port of David Gomes Axe game POP in Newprog)
Ticalc .org discription:
You are the arrow and move with the arrow keys. Every time you hit the circle the "blackness" goes down. Before you can pop the circle, you have to go first up(into the blackness) and then only you can pop it. Your goal is to get the "blackness" completely to the bottom of the screen so you can go to the next level. Each level gets harder.(For example: The "blackness" goes faster up). If the level reaches the top you get "Game Over". You must try to get to the most far level.
-Duo Tunnel(an axe tunnel game)
-Squareball(a port of the ipod game, made for the zContest 2011(8st place hybrid)) description:
Squareball is a based on the eponymous iOS game. Your goal is to get the highest score every time you play before reaching the end of the level.
Everytime you play a new level is random generated. By breaking certain blocks your time/highscore goes up. Just don't let it reach 0…
